LXer: Open source: Free as in speech, beer - or puppy?

Published at LXer:

When you put your code out under an open source licence, how much control can you expect over what it's used for? Open source has often been described as 'free as in speech, rather than free as in beer'. Yes, it's software that's free to use, but the lack of a price tag isn't always the main point.
